Tour Overview

People think that it is not possible to make a car trip around lake Baikal in the summer. But not everyone knows about an old abandoned road connecting the village Novyi Uoyan and Barguzin valley. This road was named after the only road marker pole at km 110. Built in 1974-75 as a temporary road to provide the BAM  employees with supplies. This road was then abandoned which resulted in all constructions and bridges slowly fall apart until today where they are totally destroyed and unusable... For 4x4 enthusiasts/drivers this road is considered one of the hardest and ranks in the highest category of difficulty.

Road 110 crosses Barguzinsky mountain range through numerous passes, rivers and wetlands. Part of the road go through the beautiful Dzherginsky nature reserve. And what contributes to its uniqueness is that it is hard to access, unpopulated, totally off the grid, intense elevation changes, untouched wilderness (both fauna and flora) !

During the expedition we will visit the upper section of the Lena River, drive along the BAM - one of the most expensive infrastructure project in the history of our country, you will see the northern point of Lake Baikal, Barguzin Valley, the Svatoy Nose peninsula and Barguzinsky and Chivyrkuisky gulfs.

An important part of our trip is to 'touch' the rich history of Russia. We will make a few in interesting stops, such as key construction points of BAM, old abandoned village, a labour camp site - Akukan Gulag. But you will also bathe in hot springs where the water temperature of reaches 50 degrees! You will spend a night on the largest peninsula of the Baikal lake, visit the village of Old Believers - Tarbagatay - and go to the heart of Buddhism in Russia – datsan of Ivolginsk. Finally in its last stretch the expedition will be driving along the southern shore of the Baikal and at the same time, along the Trans-Siberian railway.

For your transportation during the trip we provide specially prepared off-road vehicles - Toyota Land Cruiser, known for their power and 4x4 capabilities. You can also drive our 4x4 if you can demonstrate your offroad driving experience (conditions apply).
